Make Believe

Make Believe

July 14, 2016

It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.  

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

The whimsical act of make believe inspires us to strive for a life full of joy and adventure. It’s the kind of play that allows us to dream big and live lives rooted in creativity. Whether it's writing a fantastical story or playing dress-up, these acts of play not only spark joy, but transformation and cultivate ingenuity.

Craftspring LOVES hearing about all the fun and amazing things our community is up to. We believe it’s the daily rituals that become the magic of life, spotlighting the love and passion we wish to share with the world. In fact, it’s your stories that inspire us to dream!

Our make believe collection was born out of the wishes of a young girl we met one evening at the Union Square Holiday Market. It had become a tradition for her and her mother to come pick out her annual Craftspring ornament. This particular year, she was dancing a lead role in the Nutcracker ballet and asked if we could make her a ballerina ornament! Not only did we make one…we made three! And have expanded into a collection of Nutcracker characters who make up only a small part of our make believe world. It gives us a lot of joy to be able to make products that reflect the magic found in your everyday lives.

Hurray to dreaming! Hurray to make believe! 

We're trying to remind ourselves to also Dreaming Big. Bigger than we dare. To stretch and engage ourselves through dreams. What have you been dreaming of lately? How are you making it come true? We'd love to hear about it!
